Continua XXL Online: Alice Fontanelli Galleria Continua talks about working with Chen Zhen

On this occasion Galleria Continua is pleased to present “Field of Synergy” by Chen Zhen for its 8th edition of XXL Online.  

-

Continua XXL Online is an exclusive presentation of some of our artists’ biggest projects. Featuring previously unseen content from Galleria Continua and artists as well as in depth information and insight into production, Continua XXL Online becomes a comprehensive experience in understanding large installations and artworks.

-

“Field of Synergy” came to Galleria Continua / San Gimignano in 2000 as part of Chen Zhen’s homonymous solo show. It's a work that offers a beautiful landscape on which to examine and understand the cruxes of his philosophy, outlook and artistic practices. This viewing room presents not only Chen Zhen’s first impressions upon seeing the gallery but also his perceptions of the space, his philosophical approach to managing the space and the realization of a work that is an insight not only into Chen Zhen’s personal story but also a tool with which we can understand what the artist called Transexperience, a new discourse that takes into account the spiritual, human, technological, material and immaterial worlds.

'FANTASTIC UTOPIAS' Rocca di Angera

18/05/2020 — 27/09/2020

Curated by Ilaria Bonacossa 

In collaboration with Galleria Continua

Ala Scaligera, Rocca di Angera (VA)

www.isoleborromee.it 


Artists: Jonathas De Andrade, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Carlos Garaicoa, Antony Gormley, Shilpa Gupta, Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, Zhanna Kadyrova, Sabrina Mezzaqui, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Ornaghi & Prestinari, Kiki Smith, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Pascale Marthine Tayou, Ai Weiwei, Chen Zhen.


In the spaces of the Ala Scaligera, the works of 15 international artists give life in their diversity to unexpected and perhaps magical images, simultaneously seductive and frightening, capable of taking us to alternative universes far from what’s possible. 

In this exhibition, curated by Ilaria Bonacossa in collaboration with Galleria Continua, the protagonist is the fantastical: relegated from the nineteenth century to the world of childhood, it becomes a way to break conventions and imagine what seems to be impossible and unknown.


Opening hours: everyday, 12.00 - 18.00, last entrance at 17.30.

(In some periods the closing of the museum could vary, for up to date information please consult the website www.isoleborromee.it)

Continua XXL Online: co-founder Lorenzo Fiaschi talks about working with Daniel Buren

For  the 7th edition of the viewing room Continua XXL Online, we present #DanielBuren “Una cosa tira l’altra”!

-

Here, co-founder of Galleria Continua Lorenzo Fiaschi talks about working with Daniel Buren, some of his most famous (and controversial) works and the importance of Daniel Buren for the development of art.

-

The work was a vast structure that filled the ex-theatre cinema space of Galleria Continua in 2015 for the solo show, “Una cosa tira l'altra, lavori in situ e situati, 1965-2015”. Made from scaffolding and Buren’s signature vertical stripes, it allowed for new perspectives and view points from which to observe the surrounding architecture as well as works by other artists selected for the exhibition. Aerial walkways brought the visitor to different heights and levels and offered natural culmination and meeting points, transforming the experience into one of connection between art and people.
